I need some suggestions for loading the reciever into the truck.

Please I DON"T need to hear about people with TRACTORS that can hoist them in.

Right now I have the reciever on the base I made for my loam screener, but 1 I need the base for it's original purpose and 2 it's post holing into my pavement.

It's a Slider so it's got a little wieght behind it.

here is a link to a post I made on my hitch hoist
http://irv2.infopop.cc/eve/forums/a/tpc/f/9896073452/m/6.../656106426#656106426
If it doesn't work use the search bar at the top of the page and type in hitch hoist. HTH, Nat

I bought a hydraulic hoist from Harbor Freight for $69.95 and installed it in the RR corner of the bed. It works quite well for this purpose, as well as many other things around the ranch. It is rated for 500 lbs when the boom is completely extended, and 1000 lbs at the shortest length. It cost $75 to have it installed at a local welding shop, they braced from the frame for support. I think my money was well spent.

Let me give you an off-the-wall, "think outside the box" suggestion to mull over.

Believe it or not, some individuals unpin the hitch from the bed of the truck leaving it connected to the trailer's kingpin, lift the hitch out of its mounts with the front jacks (landing gear) on the 5th wheel, drive the truck out from under it and leave it hanging on the kingpin of the 5th wheel. When rehitching, back under the hitch and drop it in the bed by lowering the front jacks of the 5th wheel.

Several individuals report doing this routinely. In effect, the kingpin and front jacks of the 5th wheel become your hitch hoist.

Just another option to consider.....

Rusty

A $15.00 block tackle hooked to the roof rafters in the garage has worked well for me for five years!

I also have used the trailer to lift it off and left it on the pin for storage when we leave the trailer South to come home for Christmas.
